    The open architecture Droid

    I've spent some time in the embedded space and am familiar with VxWorks a closed architecture OS that was the dominate OS in mobile phone through 2002. And Linux versus, VxWorks, Windows NT and Cisco OSI. Linux, an open architecture won hands down. Why? Anyone can add to it. It's my kind of technology, my kind of toy.

    That said, I also need to use it. So right now, I want to walk into my office and have the Droid sync with my computer and become a peripheral. I don't want to pick up my Droid phone in my office. I want to answer the phone with a mouse click, I want photographs automatically offloaded to my laptop through the WiFi or bluetooth connection. Droid Commander doesn't do it, nor does Gmote or BT File Transfer.

    Is there a Droid app in the Market that slaves the Droid to a PC based GUI? If not....would you like one?

    I would definitely dig something like this, especially if it worked on any OS.

    Es file explorer will let you access samba shares. Before I found it I was using SwiFTP with a cmd script to xfer files but thats one way from pc to droid, with ES, it's both.

    I use swiftp for moving files back and forth from the sdcard and it works good for that. Look at the app websharing, it wont answer the phone but has a nice gui look to it and I've heard it works good.
